Harry & Meghan mourn ‘beloved icon’ Desmond Tutu
PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle last night hailed Archbishop Desmond Tutu as an “icon” who was “beloved around the world”.
The statement reads: “Archbishop Tutu will be remembered for his optimism, his moral clarity and his joyful spirit.
“He was an icon for racial justice and beloved across the world.
“It was only two years ago that he held our son, Archie, while we were in South Africa- ”Arch and the Arch” he had joked, his infectious laughter ringing through the room, relaxing anyone in his presence.
“He remained a friend and will be sorely missed by all.”
Harry and Meghan had met the Archbishop and his daughter, Thandeka Tutu-Gxashe in September 2019 during a visit to South Africa.
